LIBRARY CARD USE, LOAN PERIODS, RENEWALS, AND OVERDUE MATERIALS

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE A LIBRARY CARD!

LIBRARY CARD USE GUIDELINES:

  • Present your card each time you want to check out or renew items from the library or use a library computer.

  • Your card may be used at any branch location in the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library System. 

  • This is YOUR library card! Library staff reserves the right to ask for identification.

  • As a library customer, YOU are responsible for returning items in good condition by the due date.

  • Pin numbers are issued when you register for a library card. You may create a personal online account at blrlibrary.org with the use of your pin number. Online account access gives you the ability to review items that are checked out, renew items, place items on hold, and update your street address or e-mail address.

  • Items may be returned to any branch location in the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library System.

  • Children must be at least 6 years of age to obtain a library card. Youth ages 6-17 must have a parent or guardian’s signature. Parent or guardian must already have a card and be physically present at the time of application. The parent or guardian is responsible for lost or damaged items or items that have not been returned.

  • Report the loss of your library card or change of address immediately. A $2.00 fee is charged for library card replacement.

 

LOAN PERIOD, RENEWALS, AND OVERDUE ITEMS:

  • Loan Period:  All items (books, audio books, periodicals, videos, and DVD’s) check out for 2 weeks.

  • Renewals:  Books, audio books, and periodicals may be renewed for 2 additional loan periods, unless an item has been placed on hold. DVD’s may not be renewed. To renew an item, you may access your personal account online or call the library.

  • Date Due Reminder:  The library provides an e-mail/text courtesy date due reminder for your convenience. If you provide the library with an e-mail address, you will receive a courtesy reminder two days before your items are due.

  • Overdue Items:

    • Overdue fines are ten cents per day per item with a maximum of $5 per item.  Any item(s) that is more than 14 days past due will incur replacement and processing fees.  If all items are returned in good condition, you will not be responsible for replacement costs, but overdue fees will still apply.

    • 7 days past due:  The library will send you an overdue notice by mail, e-mail, text, or phone.  Use of your library card at any branch library location in the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library System will be blocked until your overdue items are returned. All fees must be paid at the time of return to “unblock” your card.

    • 14 days past due:  The library will send you a second overdue notice reminder by mail, e-mail, text, or phone. Use of your library card at any branch library location in the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library System will be blocked until your overdue items are returned. All fees must be paid at the time of return to “unblock” your card.

    • The library reserves the right to limit or revoke your library card use if items are consistently overdue.

    • YOUR cooperation in returning items in a timely manner saves taxpayer dollars and makes library materials available to ALL residents of Barry and Lawrence Counties.
